Should it? Entertainment is so niche-ified, I’m not surprised most people haven’t heard of it. I mean, Tik Tok has been enormous for years, and I know adults that are just now hearing of it. And Webtoon started off as a pure Korean comics website, so even for those that are into webcomics, many of them are going to be… Read more
I’ve heard of all the titles they’ve mentioned, but I had no idea they were the top popular ones on the site since those aren’t the ones I tend to read. I tend to gravitate towards the Korean translated ones, although it should be said that Line translations are very hit or miss.
Also, I love the vertical scroll, but… Read more
Their A Way Out playthrough was super fun for them, and I think that kept them sane throughout this.
They suck at all games. It’s the best.
Best Doki Doki playthrough, and updog will never not make me laugh.
Mudbud regularly dismisses. I wouldn’t take it personally, he doesn’t like people disagreeing with him.

You can’t tell me the AV Club of today is doing as many things as the AV Club of old and is not focusing mostly on Newswire. I know these weren’t being written at the same time, and we have Age of Heroes and… Read more
It’s not like examples of this don’t exist in the past, but they’re always one offs, like the Wire. It should be a more regular part of the TV landscape rather than having to point at the one example.
Also, it’s nice to see you’re still around.
Maybe they were, I don’t remember it that way. But even if they were, because the Newswire was a smaller portion of the site relative to the other stuff, it didn’t feel as overwhelming as it does now.
Cookie, I have been here since at least 2010. The site has definitely become more political. It used to be that the Newswire was a smaller portion of the site compared with the Reviews section. The Music and Film sections were equally as large as the TV, if not bigger, before TV took over. Now, the Newswire seems to… Read more
There are like 4 or 5 alternates in different places, but without the accompanying articles to reply, it just isn’t the same.
Normally, I would recommend some old series of articles, but the site is a shitshow now and I don’t remember most of the names of them, and I can’t find a link to the list of all features. There used to be an easy to access one. It’s a travesty as there was some incredible writing on here that was easy to access. Now… Read more
It’s very strange. On the one hand, this site has become a lot more political and a lot more outwardly liberal, to its detriment I would say. On the other hand, the shift to being part of gawker and using kinja has made what I would consider an uncontroversial article have a lot more blowback from the comments than it… Read more
Well said. I would just like to add that just as it takes empathy on those learning, it also takes empathy on those educating, and it can be a struggle for both. I can totally understand how having to educate every single person you meet becomes exhausting at some point, but it’s always disheartening when someone in a… Read more
